These 13 Japanese Cars Earn Our Highest Overall Scores

American, Korean, Italian, German, British, and Japanese automakers all compete for North American luxury car buyers. Many of these vehicles arrive on dealer lots with parts sourced globally. Long gone are the days when buying a car from one country meant you were getting a better car.
